Incredible work! Fast, efficient and friendly. Martin was able to help us install a ceiling fan when others had refused because it was too much of a hassle for them. Would reccommend Martin to all and will certainly hire him again! So so pleased with his great work

Oluwafemi was extremely responsive, knowledgable, and respectful. He responded to a posting at midnight and was at my flat by 8am the next day. He was incredibly polite and washed his hands before getting started. He completed the job in a diligent manner and got my ceiling fan reinstalled better than before. I can’t recommend him highly enough!

Top Ceiling Fan Installation related questions

Yes, the fan must be installed by a licensed electrician who knows how to wire a ceiling fan safely. As well as putting you at risk of electrocution, installing a ceiling fan yourself will invalidate your warranty.

Ceiling fans are a traditional and effective way of cooling rooms. The fan spins in a clockwise direction to draw warm air upwards and improve circulation in the room, which can lower temperatures by up to 5°C. Reversible ceiling fans can also be set to spin anti-clockwise to push warm air down and make rooms feel warmer in the winter.

Ceiling fans are an energy-efficient cooling option that use approximately the same energy as a 60-watt light bulb. You could save up to 40% on your electricity bill by combining air conditioning with a ceiling fan, as you can lower the thermostat while maintaining the same level of comfort.

The size and type of fan you need depends on the size of the space you need to cool or heat. A larger fan can circulate more air per minute. A fan with a cathedral canopy will have less wobble and noise than a fan with a bell canopy.

It normally takes around 1 hour to install a ceiling fan where there is an existing connection, but it can take longer if a new connection needs to be made or if the ceiling is difficult to access. If you're worried about ceiling fan installation cost, you should check whether your contractor charges by the hour or offers a flat rate.

The cost of the installation depends on how long it takes and how much work is involved. Installing a new fan costs more than replacing an existing fan, and it can cost more in an older property where more wiring may be needed. The average ceiling fan installation cost on Airtasker is between £125 – £265.

What do fan installers do?

Even if you know how to install ceiling fan wiring, the installation must be done by a licensed electrician to avoid the danger of electrocution. If you're having more than one fan installed on the same day, each additional ceiling fan installation will usually cost less than the first.

Your electrician may also be able to help you install other types of fans around your home, such as an exhaust fan or outdoor fan, or other electrical fittings such as lighting.

Ceiling fan replacement

If you're replacing an older ceiling fan or your room already has a ceiling outlet, the electrician can complete a like-for-like ceiling fan installation. This usually takes less than an hour and involves removing the existing fan, assembling and installing the new fan and connecting the wiring. You should also your installer whether they will dispose of the old fan or if you need to do this yourself.

New connection

If you don't already have a ceiling fan and there is not a suitable connection in the ceiling, this will need to be set up before your ceiling fan can be installed. This takes longer and costs more than replacing an existing fan. The electrician will need to run wires through the walls and ceiling and to install wall switches.

Fan with lighting

The same ceiling outlet can power a light fitting and a fan if you want to save space in a smaller room or avoid clutter. Ceiling fan and light packages can be purchased together, or they may be installed separately by a qualified electrician.

Ceiling fan repair

If your ceiling fan isn't working properly or is making noises and you can't fix it yourself, hiring an electrician for ceiling fan repair will cost less than buying and installing a new fan – unless the fault can't be repaired and you need a replacement.

We purchased the CJOY 56" ceiling fan https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B0BLCG66WS Need it installed on our downstairs ceiling. I'm 95% certain there's a joist at the existing light fitting to hang it from. Looking for somebody who has a fair amount of experience with ceiling fans as the reviews say it can be a bit tricky to get all the wiring into the ceiling rose. There's a picture of the fan in question and the space that we need it installed into. There are magnets on the ceilings showing crossbeams and then there seems to be another one going those through the fitting according to my studfinder. Thanks! - Due date: Before Thursday, 6 July 2023

I have a ceiling fan to be installed.


Lesnes Abbey, Greater London

25th Apr 2023

I live in a first floor flat and the ceiling height is 3.5m (11ft 6ins). The existing fitting is a standard lighting rose on a plasterboard ceiling. Aside from the flat above I've no idea what is on the other side of the plasterboard and what additional fittings may be required to adequately secure the fan. Please quote accordingly.

Oluwafemi did an excellent job of fitting a fan to my overheight ceiling. He was polite, considerate and explained how he was securing the fan and invited me to look closely at what he was doing. Highly recommended and would use again.

Install Ceiling Fan


Bermondsey, Greater London

19th Apr 2023

I need a ceiling fan (3 blades. 132cm diameter. 4-5kg weight) installed in the centre of the room. The ceiling is a plasterboard with a concrete frame sitting 5-6 inches above the plasterboard, about 2cm thick. To make it stable, the fan must be fitted to support mounted to the concrete or the sides of the ceiling. This may require cutting out and making good access holes on the plastboard. Note that there is no wooden joist. Currently, there is no direct electricity supply to the ceiling so this would need to be wired up from one of the supplies on the wall (including installing a switch with a fuse for this circuit). Note there is a ventilation duct in the ceiling. We don't think it should be in the way of where the fan would go, but work would need to account for the ventilation duct. Specifications for the fan can be found here: https://www.beaconlighting.com.au/productpdf/pdf/download/product_id/14013/hidePrice/1 Works to commence as soon as possible.

Really good guy. Knows what he's doing. Hung a ceiling fan for us very securely in a job that other electricians had said wasn't possible to do. Was able to pull through electrical supply from the wall with very minimal damage. Offers a good price as well. Will be using again.
